From what I know, one of the major issues between Guyana and Venezuela is that Guyanese government has started negotiations with Exxon-Mobil to drill and produce Oil in disputed territory as you can read Exxon's $40 Billion Oil Discovery Sparks a Nasty Feud. Even after several calls and diplomatic meetings the government of Guyana doesn't follow the norms accepted and signed by Venezuela and Guyana in the Geneva Agreement, by cancelling the meetings Bilateral conversations, avoiding blatantly any satisfactory solution for practical agreement as the Geneva's Agreement says, by insulting each other, and denying any UN Negotiator appointed by the General Secretary (this figure was settled in the Geneva Agreement).

Therefore, Why both parts keep doing those and avoid diplomatic solutions, settled in the Geneva Agreement?, I mean what do they gain with their rhetorical positions.
